Podcast: This American Life
This American Life is an amazing Public Radio show and weekly Podcast that uses a combination of journalism, editorial, memoirs, short fiction and interviews to share the diversity of American life (though it is anything but Americentric). From the madness of Patent Law, to a profile of an Obama lookalike to week with a High School on the edge of gang violence. Ii is highly informative, deeply insightful and often very moving.
Some episodes focus on a single person, situation or event; others present a diverse range of articles around a single theme.
A great place to start is their recent 500th episode which gives a good overview of what the show's about. Otherwise you can check out the archive, subscribe in iTunes for the latest episodes or even watch the T.V. Show which ran for two seasons.
